Well, the best motor for an FCG is a Dayton Gearmotor that runs at 6 RPM (model 2Z806).

One way to change the speed of a Dayton Gearmotor (down from the max RPM) is to use a light dimmer. Turn the dimmer up to increase speed, down to decrease.

Sorry about the brief post above. My head's swimming from all the activity here lately. But that's a good thing. :D

Yeah, I should post a link to a how-to shouldn't I?

The best FCG how-to is on the Phantasmechanics site. They tell you what motor to use and where to get it.

As for slowing it down, maybe one of the other members has a link to a how-to showing how you hook up a light dimmer to the motor.

You're on you're way! Looks great. Where'd you get the head? It looks a little more expressive than mine. I like it.

Your ghost also looks more three dimensional than mine. I'd like to fix that next year and make mine have a little more depth.
